SunEdison, Inc., (NYSE: SUNE), a leading global solar technology manufacturer and provider of solar energy services, today announced the completion of a 1.7 MW DC roof-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) system in Hesperia, California that will both provide power to Southern California Edison (SCE) and benefit the landowner, real estate developer ICO Group. SCE is purchasing the energy via a 20 year power purchase agreement (PPA) as part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program (SPVP), aimed at advancing solar energy generation. Under the program, the facility owner benefits by leasing its rooftop.
“This facility is further proof of our ability to make solar a win/win solution,” said Bob Powell, president SunEdison North America. “Whether you’re a utility looking for an established player to meet specific requirements on schedule, or a landlord looking for new revenue streams, SunEdison has the experience and track record to deliver.”
“SCE is proud to continue to support the development of solar distributed generation in California and appreciates the contribution this project will have to helping SCE meet the State’s energy goals,” said Nicole Neeman Brady, director of energy procurement at Southern California Edison.
The Hesperia facility is the second SPVP project SunEdison has completed with SCE, with nine more projects currently under development. SunEdison is the only company to win and sign projects in all three rounds of the program as part of a competitive RFP process.
